Just a quick note, for myself.
One of my brightest students comes to see me to collect the letter of appointment, and of course to see his carry mark. I admit, I was in a very bad mood, as I just woke up. I couldn't sleep last night, I did not know why. Thus, my performance was badly affected given to my sleepless state.
I asked him - why did you want to know? You already knew the carry mark, you can calculate it by yourself. He was quite persistent in wanting to know. So adamant.
And I was blurting out the comment that I will regret later.
"So, if you know the carry mark, you wouldn't study that hard, would you?"
"Erk, it's not good to have a bad perception."
Writing in English doesn't convey its full impact. He said these very precise things: Eh, tak baik buruk sangka kami tak study.
Nah, I feel like I am being slapped right in my right cheek. None of my students dare to say that kind of thing to me. As if I am a child that is behaving badly.
I admit again, I always have a very bad inkling that my students won't study THAT hard to get the best out of the exams.
Nevertheless, I feel this is the reminder from Allah swt, The Al-Mighty about this issue:
"Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Jauhilah kebanyakan dari sangkaan (supaya kamu tidak menyangka sangkaan yang dilarang) kerana sesungguhnya sebahagian dari sangkaan itu adalah dosa " - al Hujurat 12.
I'm glad that the reminder comes in a very unexpected form. Alhamdulillah.
